Infectious Disease Expert Dr. Robert W. Haley, Director of the Division of Epidemiology, UT Southwestern Medical Center, and DCMS President and Internal Medical physician Dr. Beth Kassanoff will bring us the newest on the pandemic and what we can possibly expect around the corner! After giving an overview of the pathogenesis and history of Covid-19 and the emergence of variants including Delta, Dr. Haley will address current epidemiologic trends and projections. Vaccine efficacy and acceptance, recommendations for personal protection and speculation on the future of coronavirus pandemics all will be covered. We will hear about the impact of COVID-19 on our community and the important role our Dallas County Medical Society plays during the pandemic from Dr. Kassanoff- Piper, a physician who knows it first hand.
A dinner buffet evening with these two extraordinary individuals, celebrated physicians and over-achievers will be a remarkable opportunity. Their biographies are amazing. We urge you to go online to see the full pictures, but just a snatch is here:
Dr Kassanoff was a much honored student including selection as the Outstanding Female Graduate in the State of Louisiana by the American Association of University Women and was the recipient of the Ho Din Award at UT Southwestern in 1996. She has practiced
in Dallas for over twenty years and is a founding partner of North Texas Health Partners. She and her husband Mick Piper have six children, three of them triplets. All that and practicing medicine as a leader in the medical community locally and state-wide.
We have written of Dr. Haley before in our newsletters and on our new website. His accomplishments are many as a professor and researcher at UT Southwestern and as
a leader in organized medicine. One of his more recent honors was the inaugural TMA award for Public Health, citing his effective advocacy for clean air, his speaking out
about health threats posed by climate change, his leadership work during the West
Nile epidemic, and his discovery of the cause of the Gulf War syndrome. He and his wife Stephanie have two sons, who are both Dallas physicians, a daughter, who is a PhD psychologist holding positions as a counselor and associate professor at UT Southwestern, and six grandchildren.
